in america today? >> we have a picture that is quite different from the other developed nations. we have the high states of and download speeds in america cable monopolies, local monopolies and each region of the country that dominate that market and so for 85% of americans the only choice where they live is going to be at their local cable monopolists. we don't have any of the fastest 25 cities in the world when it comes to internet access in america so we are not in the world leaders we are somewhere in the middle of the pack and we also have a very deep digital divide. so having internet access at home is tied to your economic status some may be about half of people with incomes between 30, $50,000 a year have internet connections at home but that number is even lower with incomes under $30,000 a year. rich people tend to have internet access at home, and also 9% of americans can't buy internet access wherever they live because it is just not available and hasn't been billed out to their areas of that is the picture. >> host: how did we get here? it seems that the the internet started
with the america's cup catamaran on it. we have developed parking site with the last-mile transit connections and training mta and america's cup event authorities and ambassadors to answer questions. as part of that training we have been doing sensitivity training and the mta is leading that charge, making sure that people are aware of varying needs as they need to cross a street or access a bus or get to any special needs that they might have. so we're getting close. i look forward to your questions. some of the lessons that we have learned is really to engage our partners in advance, including everyone from local and regional to public and private and this has and a multi-disciplinary and multi-jurisdictional approach and will greatly inform the city's efforts to do other big events such as the america's cup. we have used the environmental review process to inform our transportation studies and are applying them to projects such as the warriors arena on piers 30-32 and some of the other developments south of marketa and we're using pilot projects to test effectiveness. some of the examples

in america. how do he get the conversation from the immigrant conversation without u out of fear to one of hope and about why we're the encounter country in the world. how do we get that conversation reignited here with our folks. i'm proud to be an american and we'll always celebrate the opportunity in this country. so from a senate side we're not going to have family - for many others when we became successful i wanted to share that with our family members. we've also been strong in family where's that tradition. so i want to go back to let's not have immigration reform based on fear but being the open light to the rest of the world. and with the attitude and spirit then you start saying what makes our country successful. it will not discriminate against gaze and lesbians. we can do more in our immigration policies. this is an opportunity in the celebration of our country let's not make decisions out of fear but out of a progressive approach. so we can have the talent and the values of what we believe in to be reflected in a good inhabitation policy >> let's hear from so many of the
. if you work 20 years in america, paid into social security, on someone else's number and you can prove it, not worth anything. .. must present a government i.d. with a photo. the employer enters this into a computer in the e-verify system and watches for the photograph to come up. if the official government photograph for that name doesn't match the one that they have in their hand, you can't be hired. so this is going to make the work place a lot tougher and any employer who hires someone who doesn't match up, they're subject to fines an penalties. and finally, i think it was hector who told the story about overstaying a visitors visa. 40% of the undocumented people in america overstayed their visas, visitors, tourists whatever they may be. we'll have a system under this law that will track people not only as they come in on visas but as they leave on visas. this is a tough enforcement bill and those who say it isn't haven't taken a look at it. when it comes to the border, i will tell you something i had to grit my teeth as they put another 700 miles of fence and billion dollars on the b
're feeling dissed. they're wonder yg he's treating america so roughly. my own sense of it we were discussing before is that i think putin is doing this because he can. because he judges us now to be a country in some difficulties, in some trouble. it's not all his relationship with obama. it's his sense of who america is, and it's his 50-year-old resentment for what america has been. so i think we're in a rough time, and my own sense is if you make america stronger, you will make it stronger in the world and people will be less eager to snub you in colorful ways. >> schieffer: but, you know, david this is almost like-- it's kind of following a kind of high school scenario here. here you have putin sort of-- sort of taking on the role of hugo chavez. i mean, nobody thought venezuela posed any kind of threat to the united states, but shavedz apparently thought he could really make his place in the world by poking his finger in the eye of the giant. and it seems like russia which doesn't have much going now except oil revenues, and of course they do have nuclear weapons -- i don't think anybody

in america for five years so that if we're going to target one particular person we're ready to jump on it? that is being discussed and debated. the president is open to suggestions to make this stronger and more responsive and transparent. >> what's your suggestion? because the nsa argues you can't have half a haystack opinion you have to have basically all the numbers in the united states if you're going to be able to match it against what senator chambliss talked about, a bad guy overseas talking to somebody in the united states. >> that's one of two questions. first is how much do you need to collect? who should hold this? does the government need all this information on everybody in this country? that's the first preliminary question that we're going the address. the ekd second is the fisa court, this court we know very little about and isn't public, how much authority should it have? what checks should be in place to make sure that there is at least an adversary yal proceeding there when it comes to the issue of privacy and security? so i think that we're open to changes in both. the

to everything in america, not only will you not get care tomorrow, we'll take the dollars you use to get care today, and the supreme court said that was an outrageous use of federal power. seems like there's lots of examples in the history, and in our present of using the tax code to treat some people in some states differently than we do people in other state, and to use the affordable care act as a hammer, not an approach, but the stick. did you consider those things -- do you agree with my analysis of those two circumstances as they exist today, and did you consider those in the analysis that you performed? congressman, yes, we are aware of the provisions that you -- >> the stick approach opposed to the cater approach. >> as i said in the review of the legislative history, the floor debates, there's no evidence that there was any discussion of the carrot stick approach in connection with the premium tax credits. >> okay. but it is consistent with past irs practice to treat folks in some states differently than we treat folks in other states based on statute? only those with income taxes ge
provided an area that is important. and the context of sea level rise after the america's cup is complete. in terms of overall lessons those are lessons of the plan 127b9d public engagement and it's going to last throughout the project. we've learned that the public expects excellence on the waterfront xylophones. our partners are selected through a fair public process. that b cdc have to be an integral part of this process. and especially, when you're looking at major industries like at pier 70 it's important. the public is increasingly enjoying the project. and we've learned that the design uses can connect the neighborhoods to the waterfront. neck steps we're working together with those promotions and there's a high number of them at the same time. we're trying to implement the land use plan and the other neighborhoods plan. to meet the goals we're looking at potential zoning changes and probably tweaks to the waterfront designing pr we think that some of those changes are likely justified and those sites play an important part in reaching our targets. we still doesn't add up to all th

individual state cost needs. -- state's needs. and to build a workforce that will meet the needs of america. as global economic regions have become more competitive, not only the united states around the world, our work force has become more specialized, and we have more specialized services, more specialized skills. we have very scarce public resources that are available for workforce training. we have a lot of different workforce programs, so we need a thoughtful, comprehensive approach that will prepare the workforce to keep pace with a very competitive global economy. it is an issue that not only calls for national attention, but it also calls for gubernatorial attention. we can lead the way in helping to create a workforce in america that meets the demands of our employers in our states, and also build a highly skilled workforce that we can reassure the jobs back to america. bring america back to its greatest. if you look at the statistics internationally and where america stands in comparison to many other nations, in the area of reading alone, we are in the 15%'s. you look at math, w

with the opportunity he has to transform america and move it away from this unjust, immoral way it was founded and make it fair for everybody, i mean, whatever he's trying to do. i do think he's probably obsessed and very absorbed with that. whether he likes getting up and going to work every day and dealing, i don't think he likes having opposition. i think it's beneath him. he doesn't want to negotiate with opponents. wipe them out. put it in the political sense, get rid of them. that's his modus operandi. i don't think he likes the process like dukakis did. >>> straight ahead, rush limbaugh has much more to say. he insists washington doesn't want to find waste and fraud. what does he mean by that? you've not heard this, you will straight from rush. and find out the real reason why rush loves his job. our sit-down interview with rush limb baurg continues next.

'm comfortable talking about sources and methods. i think this is not a partisan issue. complacency is america's biggest enemy and al qaeda knows that. so if we have to be vigilant, our vigilance doesn't stop after a month, interesting thing from a foreign policy aspect, is president obama responsible for al qaeda's morphing and evolution. >> i don't know about that. >> maybe not. >> one of the reasons for the increased chatter here is a lot of these prisoners have escaped from where we have been holding them and we have been releasing them. so you have the abu ghraib prison break, morsi in egypt released about a thousand the other day, in afghanistan we have a program where we pay militants to leave the battlefield, they get to keep their guns, just have to sign the dotted line, say i am going to reintegrate into the community. >> they should do that for chicago. it might work. sundays, everybody knows i love to watch the sunday shows, i sit and record them just for this show. here is a montage of people talking about the terror threats. >> a threat to blow up an embassy, consulate or somethi

how to handle the protection of health in america. the public health agencies of the state level. i saw a tremendous opportunity and omb didn't care that much about what i was doing over the department. so they gave me a lot of flexibility to build the local and state public health systems. so we put a tremendous amount of money in that. then anthrax came and nobody the was worried about the threat came and since homeland security hadn't been created the department of health and human services was the place to go. so everybody gave up pretty much a blank check to develop the public health system. on the food safety if you remember correctly i was very passionate about the food safety as i figured the was the next place all over america and we were supposed to protect 80% of the food under our jurisdiction to you go see a tremendous possibility. we would put a lot of money into that and then we also had a president by the name of cheney who felt that it was absolutely necessary to ratch all of the protections we possibly could, and so it was pretty much put the money in the pot of he

powerful union in the united states of america in any field. but the union made it clear to major league baseball that they would not allow them to suspend alex rodriguez during his appeal. that would have been rather unprecedented by major league baseball and the union drew the line. >> okay. about an hour from now, the president is set to honor former ballplayers who were members of the historic negro league this evening in just over an hour. this could have been a very special day for the sport. instead, what we're discussing is a selfish cheater and alleged liar who basically has besmirched the integrity of the game. >> well, alex rodriguez doesn't need a lot of help in besmirching the integrity of the game. this is a sport that made billions of dollars throughout the 1990s on the steroid eera. yet the entire weight of the steroid era, the entire weight of the scandal has fallen on the shoulders of the players. if this was to use a world that you're very familiar with, martin, if this is abu ghraib, this is about publishing liddy england and not looking up the chain of command. becau
the weak currency. the feed imported from south america is now more expensive. the fish is also becoming popular outside japan. demand is particularly strong among wealthy russians and americans. and now japanese buyers have to compete with them for eel from china. this eel restaurant in tokyo was established 140 years ago. the price of a domestic eel dish here is now more than 3,000 yen, almost $30. it's owners don't want to raise prices, and are trying to compensate by reducing kitchen staff. >> translator: if we raise prices we'll lose customers. we need to make more cuts to cope with our supplier's price hikes. the eels cost us $5 more per kilo than last year. >> many consumers are turning to eel substitutes when they can't get their hands on the real thing. chicken is stepping in to fill the gap. they are made to look like grilled eel. >> one company offers another option, shark. the spiney duck fish is a common variety of shark that is readily available around the world. this company processes 500 tons of the fish every year. they decided to offer this alternative. they say spiney
with the america's cup talking about the parking garage. they're part of our may or may not and we hope to intercept the cars and avoid the congestion on the waterfront. another pilot is the special event team to o so we have a little bit more on a busy weekend by having drivers making sure they're available and the cars are operable. and that helps us what those really, really big events so everyday it is not treated like the super day in october and that helps them look at schedules >> you were talking about the taxis. there was nothing available and i had f lines pass me. the waterfront has a lack of taxis in general >> thank you. i came off two workshops and one of the colleagues was here to get the conversation going first year two major concerns is around the ballpark and to make sure that the left turn is easy for cabs. the traffic congestion is a major problem for them. what's happening even faster is having a cabstand in front of the the ferry terminal. and we're working with the port and the mayor's office and disabilities and with the mta taxi people to figure out how we c
. there's not enough people to come help work on the farm. >> jesus moved to america when he was 9 years old. now 22, he says a lot of people ask him about his job. >> they say where am i working, what am i doing? i tell them that and they want to do it. >> farm workers can make around $14 an hour. some forman make 60 to $100,000 a year. the work is hard and people are scared to come to america because they don't know what to expect. >> they don't want to risk coming here and not knowing a lot of stuff. not knowing how to speak english or how it's going to be. >> even with the job less numbers showing millions are out of work, doesn't mean they want to work in agriculture. >> can't force people to work. >> farm workers are in such high demand. we're told some just stop coming to work when they find a farm that pays more money. >> a little boy with only a few weeks left to live. the special role he played. it guides you to a number that will change your life: your sleep number setting. it will give you the soundest sleep you've ever had. it's a bed so intuitive it even knows you by name.
increased our rates to among the highest in america. but not nearly as much as if we hadn't passed a one-cent sales tax dedicated to water and sewer infrastructure. hunter: that sales tax counts for about a third of the revenue of the department right now. franklin: we got 75% of the voters to agree to tax themselves so that their children and their children's children could have clean water because we're investing in it now. hunter: there were no alternatives. the infrastructure was in dire straits. a lot of people didn't want to believe it had to be done, but it had to be done. what came out of those lawsuits by the upper chattahoochee river keeper were two consent decrees, focused on overflows. the intent is, city of atlanta, you need to keep the flows in the pipe. narrator: with the help of the funding the city raised, atlanta has been implementing an asset management plan that evaluates and addresses their infrastructure issues. hunter: it's a continuum. at one end, you have your regular maintenance that you do every day on the system, and at the other end, long-term planning so tha
or or here in america. al qaeda in the arabian peninsula based in yemen identified as the primary force behind the plot. lawmakers on the sunday talk shows sacreddable threat suggest that a major attack is about to happen. >> there is awful lot of chatter out there among terrorists about the planning that is going on. very reminiscent of what we sue saw pre9/11. this is the most ear russ threat i've seen in the last several years. >> we need to know and realize we're living in an increasingly dangerous world. this specific threat that we've been briefed on over and over again has reach ad new level. >> this is a wake-up call. al qaeda in any ways stronger than it was before 9/11 because it has mutated and spread and can come at us from different directions. al qaeda in a arabian peninsula is the most deadly of the al qaeda affiliates. >> 19 diplomatic posts are closed through end the week. britain, france and germany closing their embassies in yemen. jennifer griffin is live at the pentagon. jennifer, how unusual is this warning? >> reporter: it is very unusual, kelly. the state departm
that is. my experience with what we've seen with the america's cup event is not very strong. i know these are two different types of projects. i think it maybe very challenging. the park is a good option and maybe that's another place that the board can be thoughtful is in terms of thinking about what capital funds would be and private funds and promote to the public. i think that would be a great plan to go into. last three things. i agree with the board. i think that land sales were expected to be a part of the revenue for phase two i agree that i think it's a great example of our project that has experience increased cost as moving forward with time. i think it's something that we should be expecting. as much we can say whatever within phase two of the budget is important and not pouring that into phase one. >> last two things, i'm wondering if this board should approve the in accrues -- increase to legal services. i'm wondering if staff should just live within the budget. i understand cost of legal fees and and i'm just wondering about these cost. i under the reserve for the bo
to wait until after halloween to see if it is allowed to file for bankruptcy but guess what, america, detroit's distress may be on your doorstep soon. our next guest says you combine other states and city tensions you would get on number, see that on your screen? $4.6 trillion? joining us is matthew from the commonwealth foundation. it is interesting because we do look and say it for the detroit. i don't think people realize they are sitting on something very similar. >> this is something that is going to happen in cities and states all across america. what we see in detroit is a precursor for the fiscal calamities that are going to occur because of unsustainable pensions and unaffordable health care costs. these have added up and we will have to pay for it one way or the other. liz: we are talking about is pensions, what we haven't talked about are the health benefits owed to government workers. i think the american people, the viewers think of themselves we are and are breaking point with property taxes and we won't pay for necessities have to merge with each of the. we are seeing
, a young italian woman, honeymooning in america, is dead. 11 others are injured, after this scene, captured by a surveillance camera. people on the walkway, scattering in fear, as the driver speeds up, seeming to aim for them. tonight, that man is in custody, booked on suspicion of murder. abc's brandy hitt is in venice. >> reporter: a suspect is in custody tonight. >> detectives from my division have booked nathan campbell for the murder that took place last night. his bail is going to be a million dollars. >> reporter: police say 38-year-old nathan campbell ditched his vehicle moments after the horrifying hit and run, and turned himself in two hours later. new surveillance video captured by a venice beach restaurant shows the suspect parking his car and walking off, only to return and then take off down the boardwalk, plowing into a crowd of people. >> i saw him and he was looking for blood. he -- that guy was -- that guy intention was to kill people. >> reporter: you can see the dark dodge avenger swerve in and out of the packed boardwalk. here, another angle shows beachgoers trying to f
about commercial establishments like fast food places that are identified with america. and remembering some attacks in places like southeast asia years ago i would probably think about going to places like discos, nightclubs that are associated with american culture. but i wouldn't change my travel plans significantly. >> glor: what can the united states do to head off these threats in your estimation. >> there's only one thing america can do about this. americans when they think about terrorism think about plots. plots against embassies, plots against airlines. the counter terrorism business is about people. the only way to stop plots is to stop people what america can do is to find the operatives who are responsible for this and capture them or kill them. those are the only ways to stop plots. if you stop plots without stopping people, you don't succeed. >> jeff: philip mudd, thank you very much. >> sure, thank you. >> jeff: senators john mccain and lindsay graham arrive in egypt tomorrow trying to broker a settlement between supporters of ousted president morsi and the military back
mulholland with china america capital. tim, everybody's caught up in the froth here. you're looking at the fundamentals of this market. what do you see? - if you look at the fundamentals of this market, you can't be real encouraged. what you're seeing is earnings driving the market, but earnings driven by stock share buybacks and cost-cutting measures and those sort of things. margins are at their highs. you're really not seeing investment in the future. also, we know the economy's nothing to really scream about. from a fundamental standpoint, no, but fundamentals usually never win. in the short run, what you have is a fed that's printing money like crazy and looks like they're going to continue expanding their balance sheet and staying in the game, which i think is underpinning this market. - yeah, and then when inflation kicks in, what? they'll be caught holding the bag? - when inflation kicks in, which nobody's really giving any type of thought to now because we've been conditioned during the great moderation... in fact, the fed thinks that inflation is too low. but, what you're
america to read prioritize your human-resources. to take your tens of thousands of students and faculty that are in the different disciplines, from social worker to health management's, and have those students and those faculty go into the continuous community, work with the community organizations and activists, identify the problems, use our human resources, our research capacities, come up with actions, strategies, and start solving the problems in our communities the way universities did at the turn of the 20th century. the chicago state is the state of my professors. we acknowledge physical violence as a challenge. but as professor harris and our african-american studies program talks about, there is abstract violence. he talks about that. the detriment and the pain that we feel as a result of abstract violence, it far exceeds anything that one will feel from physical violence. an urban city might have 200, 300, 400 people die in one year. abstract violence, poor access to health care, from food deserts', from the literacy, infant child birth -- i mean, infant mortality, we have an
enemies, and he's made it more difficult for our security services to keep america safe. now with regard to the russians, i think i agree with the senator from new york. it's a bit of a slap in the face. i know the administration is reconsidering the visit in moscow after the g-20 with president putin. frankly i don't think president obama should go. maybe just betrays my own personal background, chris, but i think it's a jump ball whether he should go to saint petersburg for the g-20 at all. >> you've been on the fringes of it. let's get directly into this question of the nsa, what it's doing, whether should be new limits. general, the house almost passed, as you well know last week, a measure offered by congressman amash, that would have put an end to the kind of blanket collection of phone records of all americans, and instead limit that only to information on americans who were under specific investigation for links to terrorism. on a practical level, general, would that have hamstrung you? >> oh, chris, it would have turned the program on its head. look, this isn't -- this program,
threat that i've seen in the last several years. >>gretchen: should america take a stand or shut down? joining us is fox news middle eastern terrorist expert. what do you make of this? i know it would take more than an idle threat to close this many embassies. >> i do. what we know is al qaeda from yemen and other spots have threatened individuals will blow up inside the embassy. we're not talking about an all-out attack from the outside by thousands of people, hundreds of people. in this case the best position would have been to say we're not receiving visitors and we are taking measures and also ask the armies and the security forces of these countries to create a perimeter of protection. the reason i'm saying this short of knowing very specifically what time and who and what manner they're going to attack the embassy, if we don't have this information, we don't have it. that's why we shut down 22 of those. this would be the best course. the reason is this is sending a message to al qaeda and the other jihaddists they are winning. even if they don't attack they will get videos and m
, everybody, i'm bill hemmer live here in "america's newsroom." she's come back for more pain and punishment. patti ann: not at all. i'm in for martha maccallum today, and senior u.s. officials say the intelligence is specific, and it points to terrorists setting off surgically-implanted devices. former cia director michael hayden says closing the embassies could be more than just caution. >> well, that's the cost of doing business, and i understand the argument that it seems to, as you say, empower them more than perhaps they're really capable of performing. on the other hand, you have a real danger to americans. you want to be cautious and let me add an additional factor in here, chris, the announcement itself may also be designed to interrupt al-qaeda planning, to put them off stride, to put them on the back foot, to let them know that we're alert and that we're on at least to a portion of this plot line. bill: so that with chris wallace on sunday morning. peter doocy live this morning out of washington. good morning to you. the latest on these threats, what can we report? good morning. >
